[Last Chance] Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Location And Exotic Items (July 26-30)
Gear up for Destiny 2's next celebration.
Xur has returned to Destiny 2 for another weekend of selling Exotics. Everyone's favorite snake-faced Agent of the Nine is back in the solar system and selling you a slate of Exotic weapons and armor. The Solstice of Heroes event kicks off next week, making this a solid opportunity to grab some old Year One gear that can help you complete all your Season of Opulence Triumphs. [Update: It's Monday, meaning you have just hours left to check in with Xur before he disappears with the weekly reset on Tuesday, July 30.]
Where Is Xur?
Head to Earth to find Xur this weekend. He's hanging out in the Winding Cove area of the EDZ. To get to him, start at the Winding Cove transmat zone and head straight north to the edge of the area. Climb the cliff there to where a Fallen dropship has crashed. Xur chills out right beneath it.
What Is Xur Selling?
Though it's been nice to get Year Two Exotics from the Forsaken expansion from Xur on occasion, this week, all his gear is a blast from the past. As usual, he's offering an Exotic weapon and three pieces of Exotic armor, one for each character class. If you need something Xur isn't carrying, you can always snag an expensive Fated Engram, which will guarantee you an Exotic you don't already have--but only from the first year of Destiny 2 content or Forsaken. Anything that has come from the Annual Pass expansions over the last year won't be in the Fated Engram pool, so make sure you know what you need before you buy. You can also grab a Five of Swords card, which lets you adjust Nightfall runs for higher scores, and an Invitation of the Nine from the Season of the Drifter if you haven't completed them all yet.
- D.A.R.C.I (Exotic sniper rifle) -- 29 Legendary Shards
- Vesper of Radius (Exotic Warlock chest armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- Wormhusk Crown (Exotic Hunter helmet) -- 23 Legendary Shards
- Armamentarium (Exotic Titan chest armor) -- 23 Legendary Shards
Though it often gets overlooked, D.A.R.C.I is a powerful sniper rifle whose primary usefulness is in gaining information. The Personal Assistant perk tells you enemy health and other info when you scope in on a target, while the Target Acquired perk gives you better target acquisition and higher precision damage. If you like snipers, you can get a lot done with this one in PvE.
Vesper of Radius
If you're the kind of Warlock who likes throwing down rifts for teammates, Vesper of Radius is for you. It generates an Arc shockwave when you cast rifts that can damage enemies and recharges your rift energy when you're surrounded, making it highly useful when you're healing yourself in the heat of battle.
- Slot 1: Unflinching Scout Rifle Aim; Unflinching Sniper Rifle Aim; Unflinching Power Aim
- Slot 2: Auto Rifle Reserves; Sidearm Reserves
Hunters also get an Exotic that pairs with their class ability. Wormhusk Crown gives you a little boost when you use your Hunter dodge, providing a small bump to your health and shields that can help you stay alive a little longer.
- Slot 1: Heavy Lifting; Enhanced Ashes to Assets; Machine Gun Targeting
- Slot 2: Sword Reserves; Machine Gun Reserves
Xur's chest armor for Titans is pretty simple: It gives you an extra grenade charge. No frills for Armamentarium, just more pockets so you can dish out additional destruction.
- Slot 1: Unflinching Rifle Aim; Unflinching Large Arms; Enhanced Unflinching Bow Aim
- Slot 2: Bow Reserves; Hand Cannon Reserves
